Hi, I'm from India. I have 7 years of experience in Software (SaaS) Sales for tech companies and also have recently founded a tech platform which I plan to grow during/after MBA as side hustle till it becomes main.
I have offers from: Durham, Edinburg, Bath, Aston, Exeter. I was unable to give GMAT and now it's a little late to attempt for it and secure Sept'23 intake which is a must for me.
Hence I applied to schools like Warwick (rejection), Lancaster (rejection), Strathclyde (rejection), Leeds BS (awaiting).
My goals: To secure a mid to senior leadership role in the UK in IT consulting or tech startups, in the areas of sales/marketing/strategy.
Based on certain factors of rankings, employability, etc., I have ruled out Exeter for now since it's a small town and far south.
I'm left with Durham > Bath > Edinburg > Aston as choices in my order of preference.
What I value: Employability in the UK post MBA (with possible 100k+ salary), College reputation amongst recruiters, Networking opportunities in the college and the city.
Yet to get a reply on how much scholarships they decide to give me.
- Would it be wise to pick Bath over Durham/Edinburgh for the above factors and being closer to London?
- Should I apply to Liverpool & Leeds Business School in case they are better than these?
Any feedback will be appreciated. Thank you in advance!
